THIS IS A GREAT 1950s ERA US NAVY G-1 LEATHER FLIGHT JACKET BY L. W. FOSTER SPORTSWEAR CO. INC. THE JACKET ITSELF IS IN FANTASTIC CONDITION, THE SLEEVE CUFFS AND WASTE BAND ARE IN PERFECT CONDITION. NO DAMAGE TO THE LEATHER PART OF THE JACKET. T ARE 3 TEETH MISSING OFF ZIPPER BUT STILL WORKS. THE ONLY OTHER THING WRONG WITH IT IS THE FUR COLLAR HAS BEEN REPLACED WITH A LEATHER COLLAR A LONG TIME AGO. IT IS A VERY GOOD REPLACEMENT. THE SIZE IS 44. MEASUREMENTS ARE ARM PIT TO ARM PIT 24 1/2", COLLAR TO TAIL 26" AND SLEEVE FROM TOP OF SHOULDER TO TIP OF SLEEVE 27".

THIS CAME FROM THE LOCAL ESTATE OF A NAVY LT. COMMANDER WHO RETIRED IN 1956 AND WAS AN ENLISTED FLYER BEFORE THE SECOND WORLD WAR AND WAS A PILOT AND A FLIGHT DECK OFFICER IN THE LATE WAR. HE WAS ALSO ON THE COMMISSIONING CREW OF THE USS FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT CVB-42 IN 1945 AND ITS V2 DIVISION OFFICER. I HAVE LOTS OF FANTASTIC ITEMS FROM THE USS FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT CVB-42. AND EARLIER NAVAL AVIATION MEMORABILIA THAT I AM LISTING SO CHECK OUT MY OTHER AUCTIONS.
